Seattle Dad

"Despite the name, the Boston Cooler is a Detroit original. To be properly enjoyed, you must use Vernor's as your ginger ale. However, as it's not readily available in all markets, substitute other brands if you must."

I've been making these for more than 45 years, and I still consider these a mind blowing treat. To the reviewer who likened it to a "foamy melted milkshake", add a scoop, or two, more icecream ...
